MSc Applied Criminology at Winchester explores the contributions of criminology to relevant professional settings. It reinforces students' understandings of key criminological concepts and methods, translates them to a variety of professional settings and provides students with both direct experience and enhanced understanding of these professional contexts. Applied Criminology considers crime, deviance, security and insecurity and addresses a variety of different criminological careers, offering modules relevant to three distinct professional pathways: forensic psychology, policing and security. In keeping with an ethos of active and engaged learning, students undertake advanced training in criminological research methods relevant to applied settings and gain direct experience through a work placement/internship or work-based learning opportunity for those students employed in relevant professional settings.
Further information about the core and optional modules for this programme are available from the individual course pages on the University of Winchester website.
Normally a first or second-class Honours degree or professional experience in the area of study. A related Honours degree is desirable but not essential, as the second semester of the full-time MSc is devoted to developing students' dissertation within a criminal justice environment. This course is ideal for those with an interest in pursuing a criminal justice career in policing, probation, prison work or similar.
